Crag features

The Western Walls are the extensive stratified walls running south from the fence-line to the prominent leaning prow overlooking Wind Bay. The walls contain some of the most outrageous low-grade climbing in mainland Britain: intimidating, well-protected climbing on solid rock.

Approach notes

Approach from Gupton Gate on the track marked by white posts in 50 mins.

Restricted Access


The crag is in Range West, an Army live-firing range. Briefed climbers (with a valid permit) can access the crag year round when the range is not firing (all weekends &  Bank Holidays plus occasional week days). Briefings now last from date of briefing to following Easter.  Night firing normally occurs on Tuesday & Thursday but may also alternate to Monday & Wednesday.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 1 August

Reason: Nesting Birds

The restriction has been lifted due to birds failing to nest in this area.
